Hongik Grad Student Slays Samsung Lion

October 31st, 2011 . by Errol

Unique Motto, the one man company of Lee Jong-gil, a Hongik University graduate student, signed a contract with Samsung Electronics for the period between March 2009 and 2010.

The contract was for pattern designs for home appliances. Lee objected to Samsung infringing his name display rights on three of his patterns: “Queen’s Garden,” “Windflower,” and “Cezanne 2″ by replacing his name with the name of British designer Karen Little. Seongdong District Court has now rectified this historical error by awarding compensation of 30 million won to Lee.

Little was also allegedly given a large donation by a Samsung scion, for work rendered by Lee.
